In Assam, doctors performing C-section realized that the baby in womb was premature. The doctors stitched the mother back up, and the woman is now reported to be in a critical condition. The six-month pregnant patient from Assam is now in critical condition after the doctors in government hospital stitched her back while performing a Caesarean section.

The C-section was done by Dr. AK Biswas at the Karimganj Civil Hospital earlier on August 22. Based on the doctor’s suggestion, the patient was admitted at the hospital for 10 days, and on August 31, she was discharged. However, her health started deteriorating immediately.

The doctor was on the receiving end of public outrage and he was reported to have locked himself in a room. It took the doctor an hour to gather his wits, and told locals that he stitched the patient back as the foetus was premature.

Meanwhile, the patient’s husband claimed that as per the case, the expected due date of delivery was December 9. However, the doctor attempted the C-section over three months before the due date.

A seven-member team has been formed by Dr. Lipi Deb Sinha, the superintendent of the hospital. “Apart from the cut, if she has any other complications, the team will find out and we’ll take care of it too,” she said.
